A website tracking my attempt to publish my own book, "Brighton's Best Pubs". This is a locally produced guide to every pubs and bar in Brighton, the book is a comprehensive guide covering an amazing 300 pubs and bars within the city, utilising a unique pub rating system. Atmosphere, Beer, Barstaff, Food, Entertainment, Decor/Garden and Talent are all rated for each pub/bar. It also features maps, a Club guide and suggested pub crawls.

Review in the North Laine Runner

"You can't go wrong with this one."
A great review in the latest edition of the Brighton Community Magazine "The North Laine Runner":

"Some people manage to carve out the best jobs in the world and my first reaction when asked to review this book was 'why didn't I think of this?'
An anonymous group of Brightonians calling themselves The Pub Jury has got together to try out (sorry I mean research) our local pubs, all 300 of them, and rate them accordingly.
The result: The Definitive Guide to Brighton's Best Pubs. ArAnd it's pretty much what it says on the tin: 'An A-Z of all 300 pubs and bars in Brighton, independently tested'.

The North Laine has 38 drinking holes and it's easy to find out where and who they are thanks to a thoughtful selection of maps within the first few pages. Each pub is numbered and cross-referenced to the list of names on each map."

The review goes on and is pretty extensive (2 full A4 pages!), but here is the summary at the end:

"You get the impression that the Jury has, hand on heart, done its best to be honest and equivocal, with credit and criticism given where it is due.
For Christmas or birthday presents, sending your offspring off to study in the town, or just spending that £10 book token you didn't know what to do with, you can't go wrong with this one. And you could have just as much fun as The Pub Jury did researching it."

Well, what can we say? Thank you very much Lizzie and the North Laine Runner!
